Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond of New Orleans, head of the U.S. bishop's committee on divine worship, clarified how the new translation of the Roman Missal should be used in services and rites outside of the Mass.
Archbishop Aymond answered questions about the new missal at the U.S. bishops' conference's fall general assembly, held in Baltimore Nov. 14-16.
The new English translation of the Third Edition of Roman Missal will be used in the U.S. beginning on Nov. 27, the first Sunday of Advent.
Archbishop Aymond explained to fellow bishops that his committee worked with the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship to determine certain instances where the material from the new Roman Missal should be adapted to other rites.
